Sure seemed like the update made things snappier to me. I do notice that backing up to the main menu from playing a video or listening to a podcast does stall for about a half-second. This probably wouldn't bother me at all if I hadn't come from an old 4G iPod that was really fast. I do hope a firmware update clears this up however...

My other complaint about the classic is how they've done something to cripple a large number of older accessories. Apparently the playing of video is not only no longer supported via the headphone jack, but playing from the dock connector now requires a special cable (which is currently only available from Apple, and has a 3-4 week backlog).
